Watch Mike Tyson Gives Boxing Lessons to Serena Williams in Florida

Two of the most famous athletes in the world got together in Florida this week for a boxing workout. Mike Tyson was seen giving boxing lessons to Serena Williams and Tyson posted a video of the workout on his Twitter and Instagram accounts. The workout took place at Mouratoglou Preseason which is a camp hosted by Williams' coach Patrick Mouratoglou according to the Daily Mail.

"I don’t want to get in the ring with this GOAT [Serena]," Tyson, 53, wrote on his Instagram account, adding, "Much love and respect."

This led to a number of fans flooding Tyson's comment's section. On Twitter, one fan wrote: "Serena would’ve been a great boxer. She would’ve been great at any sport she wanted to do. I saw her live in Miami, she has every tool in her kit. Speed, power, agility, flexibility, intelligence ... everything."

"[Serena] is without a doubt the GOAT at her game," another fan wrote. "As a boxer per this video not at all. However, given her talent, athleticism and strength I don't doubt that under your tutelage she could totally become a decent or even great boxer. Make it happen. I will support her."
